Processing Fee

Sustenance of a journal following the traditional model depends on restricting access to its published contents to only those readers who pay subscription, in order to recover the costs of the publication process. But, the innovative open access publishing model provides immediate, worldwide, barrier-free access to the full-text of all its articles. Open access allows all interested readers to view, download, print, and redistribute any article without a subscription, enabling far greater distribution of an author's work than the traditional subscription-based publishing model. Many authors in a variety of fields have begun to realize the benefits that open access publishing can provide in terms of increasing the impact of their work.

In an open access model, the publication costs of an article are paid from authors' research budget, or by their supporting institution, in the form of Article Processing Charges. These Article Processing Charges replace subscription charges and allow publishers to make the full-text of every article freely available to all interested readers. In addition, authors who publish in open access journals retain the copyright of their work, which is released under a "Creative Commons Attribution License," enabling the unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction of an article in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited.
